This was a wonderful tour! We had so much fun at the different vineyards and the information given at the beginning of the tour was really interesting-We loved learning about the background information of the wines we were drinking and how to properly "taste" the wine. Even at 9:30 am, there weren't many complaints about drinking Chianti. we would recommend... More

This was a nice way to spend half of a day. You start out at the Tuscan Wine School with a short introduction to the wines of the region, their history, and how to properly taste the wine. Then hop on a bus for about 20-30 mins to visit two very beautiful wineries. After each winery tour, you sit down... More

Thanks for sending in your review. We value all opinions. The tour you did is called Wine Time and it's a quintessential half day wine tour that intends to give a whole lot of info about Tuscany and what makes Chianti Classico special. It is true, we spend more time tasting wine than talking about how the stuff is made... More

At the last moment, we contacted Tuscan Wine School in Florence and were very lucky to get on the Chianti Classico tour. They responded to my email with availabilty and 1 hour later we were on the tour. The tour guide (Katerina) was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. The tour bus was very comfortable and was a short 30... More

I can't say strongly enough how there is NO downside to choosing this option for a wine tour. It is friendly and accessible no matter what your wine knowledge. It is an incredible value considering that you get a trip into the country, many wines to try, and also a delicious meal (they call it a snack, but don't be... More

We were met by Catarina at the Tuscan Wine School which was a short walk from our hotel. We had a short lesson on wine tasting, Chianti wines and olive oil. We then went on a very comfortable bus for the trip to wineries. Both were beautiful and we had a delicious lunch at the 2nd winery. Be prepared to... More

My husband & I had an amazing time on the "Wine Time" tour. As newcomers to the art of wine, this tour taught us a lot & was very enjoyable! I think wine lovers at all levels could enjoy this. A yummy lunch at the second winery, Casa Emma, was the perfect way to top off a very fun, informative,... More

We love this tour! My girlfriends and I booked this months in advance and had an amazing time. They said we were having a "light lunch", homemade pasta, bruschetta, dessert, and so much amazing wine! Definitely plan on buying some olive oil, balsamic, and wine while there too! Worth every penny. We did the 1/2 day morning one, but I... More
